Hebrews 1:1–3 #

Notes: #

God Speaks #

God is in the business of revealing Himself. This began as time began, as He walked with Adam; as He accepted Abel’s sacrifice, and rejected Cain’s sacrifice; as He made a covenant wit Abraham.1

The theme of Hebrews is the superiority of Christ to all things which have come before.2

Jesus is God’s final revelation of Himself.

Ways that Christ revealed God’s nature:

  • Omniscience3
  • Salvation4
  • Transformation5 (He took Peter from “you are,” to “you shall be.”)

  1. Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, (Hebrews 1:1, ESV) ↩︎

  2. But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. (Galatians 4:4-5, ESV) ↩︎

  3. Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” (John 1:48, ESV) ↩︎

  4. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:2-8, ESV) ↩︎

  5. He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon the son of John. You shall be called Cephas” (which means Peter). (John 1:42, ESV) ↩︎
